How to Make Chalk Paint :: not the chalkboard type of paint, it's like the Annie Sloan chalk type of paint! cool...tutorial.
I love this recipe for chalk paint! I used a whisk to stir it, and that makes it much easier. I also let it expand by leaving it for an hour or 2. It is beautiful in any color. Also, I had to use a satin paint this time, and the recipe flattened it right out!
yeah not quite. Latex is still latex and acrylic is still acrylic. Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan is a proprietary formula that has neither rubber nor polymer binders... try again.
She didn't say that it was Annie Sloan - I make my own and I have bought and used AS as well - making your own is a fine alternative when you don't have the means to spend $35 a quart. Don't be a paint snob.
Well said! I just ran into another paint snob today during my first attempt at buying Annie Sloan products. I shared with the sales girl that I had painted an armoire for my daughter with home made chalk paint and needed to purchase some wax. She had nothing but negative things to say! It's so frustrating to have negative people rain on my crafty parade:)
Some people have negative lives, so they can't help but be negative. Kind of a misery loves company thing. I love the results from my own chalk paint. I like it better then AS paint, and yes, I have used both. I don't care what binders she may or may not use. Perhaps paint snobs should invest in some rubber or polymer binders so they can get a grip. LOL
